Hello lztvshows, To find your .htaccess file, be sure you did the following: 1. Log into your cpanel dashboard 2. Using the File Manager (be sure to select Show Hidden Files), navigate to your public_html folder 3. scroll down the list and the files that begin with a . will be directly under the folders. If you do not have that file, you can simply create a new blank one by using the cPanel File creator. Simply click on the New File icon from the upper tool bar and give it a name. From there, you can edit the file from within the File Manager. Best Regards, Scott M
